Eton Mess

The most important element of an Eton mess is the strawberries, which must be the finest you can get. A close second is the meringue. Yes, you could easily use shop-bought meringues, but they won’t be nearly as good as these chewy, crunchy ones you can make yourself.

Edd says: “British folk can’t agree on how to correctly pronounce the word scone or even whether the jam or cream should go on first, so this slab scone will be sacrilege for some, but I love it, as it turns a dainty afternoon tea staple into a perfect dessert.”
